Ready Healthy Go!

I apologize if you've seen Tina or Lauren's recap, but I wanted to let everyone in the Boston area know about a wonderful opportunity to get healthy, fresh food when you're on the go! A few weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to meet Jeff- the founder and CEO of Ready Healthy Go and try his company's products. Their menu provides many amazing choices, ones that I could totally see myself creating at home. Fresh, convenient, and most importantly tasty-- a great option if you're near The Harvard Coop or their other gym locations.


The sandwiches are made using Iggy's bread, which is reason enough to get one :) But with choices like Roasted Portobello, Chipotle Spiced Chicken and Grilled Asparagus, you'll have trouble picking which one! Asparagus on a sandwich? Loved this idea, as well as the smoky eggplant spread that accompanied it. The sandwiches were all winners, but it was the amazing spreads (sweet pea mockamole and basil white bean puree) that added so much flavor and kept dancing around in my head :) A great way to boost nutrition without adding alot of calories!

Next up were the wraps, Vietnamese Tofu, Turkey Green Apple and Just Veggies. These were all fantastic, with the standouts being the Apple Vinaigrette on the Turkey Wrap, Edamame Hummus on the Veggie Wrap, and the texture of the tofu! Luckily Jeff was nice enough to share one of their secrets to their dressings ;) I'll have to give it a try myself... so you'll have to wait!

And then came the salads. I did not expect to be able to sample so many things, but it was great. Except that I liked everything, and it was hard to stop at just a taste! We got to try the Sesame Glazed Salmon, Herbed Chicken and the Jicama and Citrus Salads. All of these were awesome, there's no way for me to pick a favorite :) All their nutrition info (found online or on the products themselves) includes dressing--if you look at the numbers, you'll understand why I was impressed!!

Bottom line? Loved it. They cater, too, so I'll have to put in a plug at work! Jeff has done an amazing thing- bring together the people required to make fabulous, healthy, fresh meals available to me when I need to eat on the go!

Thanks to Lauren and Tina for their pictures, as I was sans camera! It was a fabulous night with the girls :)

I am totally stealing the asparagus sandwich idea and making my own gluten free version! It looks seriously A-MAZING! The combination of traveling and reading/writing food blogs has opened up my world to so many glorious new foods! I LOVE IT! Today I tried Ethiopian cuisine. Check out my blog for my take on it!

Very cool! I'll have to make a point to grab one at the Coop next time I'm in the Harvard Square area.

I walk by one of the gyms that has one of these whenever I go to Shaw's...I was wondering what it was and then I saw Tina's review. I was amazed by the nutritional stats as well...all the dishes sound GREAT.

Hi ttfn!

It's at times like this that I SO miss living in a bigger city--the food looks amazing! But I am goign to swipe the asparagus sandwich idea (hmm. maybe with some goat cheese ??? :))

Your blog makes me so happy, ttfn.

(p.s. after seeing the photo of you with your firends I just have to say: your profile photo does not do you justice, woman. You are beautiful!!!)

Those sandwiches and wraps look excellent! I do love the idea of asparagus inside the sandwich. Awesome!

Dawn said...

I haven't been to the coop in a couple years. My sister graduated from Harvard so no need to go there anymore.
Don't you just love Iggy's? I don't know what they do to their doughs, but they seriously/closely resemble those doughs found in france. I hope ready healthy go comes to the cape; I can help show them where to best place their stuff.
